Default First flight with the HZ super cub

I flew the entire duration of the batter and didn't break anything. Had a slight crash landing but only because I was landing on grass so the wheels just grabbed and nosed it over. I had a lot of fun and I'll be upgrading to lipo and brushless after I get a little more experience. This was my first ever flight. I did practice with the flight simulator at the lhs and it helped a lot

Welcome to planes, man. Congrats on a successful flight. I remember you from cars/trucks forum and one of these days I've been meaning to tell all my buddies form cars/trucks forums to try planes. I don't know why I waited so long, I've been having a blast.

Hope your cub is undamaged.

Setting it down in the grass for those first few flights is exactly the right thing to do. If you can find a patch that's fairly tall put it there. You pretty much can't break anything that way unless the engine keeps running.

Congrats. I used this same plane to learn on and have now gone to PZ t-28 full size (good next plane). Have fun it is a great
plane. Just to warn you now you will get hooked on planes and the collection will start to grow

Haha yeah I already have 9 cars so I'm sure the plane collection will grow in the same way. Ill post up on how my next few flights go. It has been windy here lately so I don't know how much I'll be flying
